Wondercon Announcement Trailer for EVIL DEAD – Plus First Clip from the Film
The tagline for director Fede Alvarez’s Evil Dead remake reads as follows: “The most terrifying film you will ever experience.” If the red band trailers and reactions from the film’s premier at SXSW are any indication, it certainly lives up to its billing. In an appearance on The Late Late Show with Craig Ferguson a couple of nights ago, star Jessica Lucas introduced the first clip from the film. The clip features Lucas’ character at the sink in front of the mirror. Along with the first clip is the Wondercon announcement trailer, which is sure to provide plenty of scares. On its first submission to the MPAA, Evil Dead received a rating of NC-17, but that has since been downgraded to an R rating. Critics in attendance at the SXSW screening cited the film’s extensive and horrific gore. I honestly don’t know if I’ll be anywhere near this film when it hits theaters in three weeks. Also, if you plan on watching the red band trailer, don’t say I never warned you. Hit the jump to check out the clips.
Evil Dead stars Jane Levy, Shiloh Fernandez, Elizabeth Blackmore, Lou Taylor Pucci, and Jessica Lucas and hits theaters on April 5th, 2013.
